2014 NCHE Conference Mentor Application

Do you enjoy sharing your homeschooling experiences with others? Do you like helping new homeschooling moms navigate the world of home education? If so, we need you!

The 2014 NCHE conference committee is looking for mentors that can answer questions and encourage other home educators at the conference May 22-24, 2014. Mentors can serve in a variety of roles, and we would love to have dads as well as moms. We have broken down the mentoring program into four categories:

  • Elementary,
  • Middle School,
  • High School, and
  • Special Needs/Learning Issues.

If you are selected to be a mentor, you will be expected to work 2 hours each day you are in attendance or a total of 6 hours for the full three day conference.  (The Support Group Leader's Luncheon on Thursday does not count toward these hours.)

You will be reimbursed your full conference registration fee as a thank you for serving. Your conference registration will be refunded to you at the end of the conference.

If you are interested in serving, complete the following application as soon as possible. As part of the application, please ask two or more reference providers to complete the online Mentor Reference Form.

The deadline to apply is March 1, 2014.

Please share this with others, including retired homeschoolers. Also, invite your homeschooling friends to conference. The 2014 conference marks our 30th anniversary, and we want to make sure every homeschooling family is invited to join us!

Please email mentoring@nche.com if you have questions!!
